It’s an unfortunate reality that over time, skin loses its firmness and youthful appearance. This can be exacerbated by fluctuations in weight, pregnancy, and the natural aging process. While it’s normal, it can have a negative effect on confidence and comfort with one’s appearance. Now, there’s Renuvion (J Plasma), a revolutionary skin tightening procedure that can correct loose skin without visible scarring and major surgery. Dr. David Mashhadian at Rodeo Surgical Art can perform this procedure alone or in conjunction with other procedures so you can have smooth, tight skin you’ll love.
How Does Renuvion Work?
Renuvion works when radiofrequency (RF) energy converts helium gas to an extremely stable cool plasma at lower temperatures than RF or ultrasound alone (100º vs 300º-600º). When applied to the underside of skin through a tiny cannula, the plasma beam cuts, coagulates, and ablates soft tissues either laparoscopically or in open procedures. As a result, skin contracts and stimulates collagen production, the support structure that maintains skin’s firmness and youthful look. The process resets the clock so your tissues behave as much younger skin, taking years off your age. Because Dr. Mashhadian can see the tightening as it happens, he can sculpt and contour your soft tissues to the best possible shape, all without damaging nearby tissues, thanks to Renuvion’s temperature safety controls.
These extraordinary skin tightening effects can rejuvenate nearly anywhere on the body, such as the:
- Thighs and legs
- Sides or flanks
The cannula is inserted through small incisions made either exclusively for Renuvion skin tightening or another procedure, such as liposuction or a tummy tuck. The plasma beam reacts with the underside of your skin to tighten and boost collagen, and it only takes around 30 minutes to complete.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Have you got loose skin you’d like to tighten, but aren’t sure about having an invasive surgery to remove it? Renuvion may be the answer you’ve been waiting for. If you’re having another procedure, Renuvion may be added to enhance your results. A consultation with Dr. Mashhadian is a great place to start.
What are the Benefits of Renuvion Skin Tightening?
Recovery time with Renuvion is minimal. Because the tiniest of incisions are made and Dr. Mashhadian carefully navigates the cannula to strategically tighten your skin without damaging surrounding tissues, recovery from Renuvion takes up to 2 weeks less than more invasive procedures where recovery can last a month or more. You may resume your normal schedule 1-2 weeks after your procedure.
There’s a minimal chance of scarring. The procedure to remove excess skin can often come with large scars due to the need for big incisions to remove excess skin. Renuvion’s energy is delivered through the smallest incisions possible, so while you may have tiny marks, they’re much less noticeable than traditional skin removal procedures.
The results are indisputable. With Renuvion, you’ll see immediate improvement with noticeably tighter, firmer skin. Because stimulating collagen is a longer process, your results will continue to improve for months, so what’s immediately visible will get even better with time. Studies show Renuvion treated skin behaves like skin much younger, so while you’ll still experience aging, it will do so from a much more youthful starting point.
At Rodeo Surgical Art, we believe in bringing our patients the latest innovations, technologies, and techniques to stay at the forefront of the cosmetic enhancement industry. With our commitment to visible, quantifiable results, we only adopt procedures and technologies that provide true, measurable improvements. We’re excited to bring Renuvion to our patients for the least invasive, most effective skin tightening available today.
